be with regard to the economy and not both sides being able to go back to constituencies and say truthfully here's where i stood and it happened nevertheless. it benefits the republicans because their mantra is one of we are not going along with spending cuts without tax increases and we can't have tax increases on top of the 600 billion we went along with. the president made a pitch to independence by saying the word compromise. i'm for doing this in a manner that compromises. i think it's going to happen a week from friday without a vote and that is also to the benefit of the members because they won't be held accountable for it. >> is this the new normal that we came to expect? >> yes. >> how washington works and is it how our founding fathers designed our system to work? isn't there a catch 22 here as we beat congress over this and isn't this the way we were designed to work? >> i can't go that far back in history, but in modern times and the time i have been paying attention which is three decades, i don't think the polarization has been anything like it is today. this entire situation is r
on the economy if it were to take place. >> there were others like howard dean suggesting the president should let the sequester happen. to slice the pentagon's budget. dean telling the huffington post i'm in favor of the sequester. it's tough on things i care about a lot but the fact of the matter is you are not going to get another chance to cut the defense budget in the way it needs to be cut. white house officials disagree. as an outgoing defense secretary leon panetta who warned such deep cuts could leave america with a second rate military. you will remember republicans were furious before the election that the white house did not follow the warren act that requires employers to warn employees about the potential lay-offs. since furlough notices are only going out now, defense officials say they work at the pentagon until late april. even if the sequest starts on march 1. at the white house, ed henry. fox news. >> bret: the pentagon's budget chief says the effects of the cuts will be felt nationwide. he says the biggest potential losses will be in california, texas, georgia and virginia.
. >> these cuts are not smart. they are not fair. they will hurt our economy. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment list. people will lose their jobs. the unemployment rate might tick up, again. >> and that's why democrats, republicans, business leaders and economists they've already said that these cuts here in washington and sequesteration are a bad idea. they're not good for our economy and not how we should run our government. >> congress asks that this plan replace cuts through january of next year, which means, again, we are looking at another replacement plan, something far from a long-term solution to the budget problem. >> this morning we're looking at our area is among the areas that can be hurt the most by. government spending makes up 20% of our economy. defense spending also makes up almost 10% of our economy. >>> and right now, prince william county police are on the scene of a bizarre crime spree that started last night and ended with an suv crashing into a house in woodridge. tony is live on the scene with new developments. tell us what you learned.
misconception that he planned to run immediately afterwards. i think it's -- his assumption was that the economy continued to improve our would improve and i think running and losing in '08 was very liberating for him. and he found that he could be very happy. we kept talking around it, you know, we had a very busy, he wanted to talk about it. we had a very busy 2010 client schedule, in a very mitt romney way he said finally, well, on election day 2010, you can do anything for your clients, why don't we meet on election day 2010? i said, okay, i can do that. so my partner and i met him in boston at his condo on election day 2010. and that was a thing when i got a sense that he was really intending to run. it was serious before but i got the sense he definitely was going to run. >> david, covering the white house, i got the sense that you guys thought you were running against mitt romney. you always sort of viewed mitt romney as the face of the republican party. is that an unfair -- >> no. in fact, the president and i after the 2008 election, we were musing about the future, and he asked me who i
allowed us to think about defining our economy and, in fact, we are. think about ohio. when you leave ohio, you say to people, "what do they do in ohio?" well, you know, they're all manufacturing. well, we love manufacturing or agriculture, we love farming, but jobsohio has led us begin to think about things like bio- health, automotive, advanced manufacturing, polymers and chemicals, financial services -- number two in property and casualty in the country. there's nothing that's happening more exciting than in the area of it. aerospace, where we're now beginning to work in the dayton area thinking about being able to fly unmanned vehicles. in the area of agribusiness and, of course, energy, which has us all excited, and logistics. you see, if you have many different areas that you target, when one part of the economy goes down, it doesn't mean it sinks your state. and so jobsohio has been able to work to diversify us and it's clearly working. and now that we're funded, we think we're even going to get more out of jobs ohio than we've seen so far. we also moved directly in the direction of
the sequester is not higher taxes or just better spending control. it's by creating jobs, growing the economy and expanding the tax base. >> president obama will be taking his message on the road next week to a virginia shipbuilding operation. virginia, with its massive defense industry, would be hit hard by the spending cuts. arthel. >> molly henneberg live from washington. thanks. >> as the u.s. faces its own economic problem, britain's economy is facing a serious new setback. moody's, the credit rating agency, announced the first ever downgrade of the u.k.'s pristine credit rating by a notch, blaming weak growth and political turmoil for throwing its deficit reduction plan off course. david ram con says he has full confidence in his finance minister, george osborne, despite criticism that their debt strategy is failing to deliver, britain now joining the u.s. and france in having lost its triple a rating from at least one major agency. >>> serious new concerns out of iran asment country's powerful revolutionary guard begins new military exercises, at the same time iranian scientists announ
now, a tremor will hit the american economy that is both unwelcome and unnecessary. it is an across-the-board cut in spending that, according to some estimates, will cost us 750,000 american jobs. as we will hear today, there are some estimates that that is too conservative. if one takes into account the ripple effects of the tremor, it may cost us many more jobs than that, but even by the most conservative estimates, 750,000 americans who worked in contract in firms, research companies, universities, hospitals, child care centers, schools, businesses small and large around the country, and who work for the government itself, will find themselves and their country at risk. this does not need to happen. led by my friend and colleague from whom we will hear in a little while about the specifics, we put forward a constructive, common-since alternative to avoid these 750,000 layoffs. the alternative, frankly, involves closing tax loopholes that the wealthiest among us can exploit and take advantage of, and stopping mindless subsidies to huge oil companies and agribusinesses. it makes se

we all lived when the floor fell out of the 2008 economy. that was the detroit represented by the three big auto manufacturers whose failure would have symbolized to many of us the very failure of america, and that detroit as the obama for america campaign reminded us repeatedly, is now very much alive and kicking. but that detroit, the detroit we all want to see survive, exists in the entire country, not within any specific municipal bounds. then there is the literal detroit, the one where people live, the renaissance city founded initially in 1701. once it was a hub for mechanical manufacturing and detroit in the mid 20th century was a magnet for those looking for work. the city's population grew to more than 1.8 million residents in the 1950s. today, according to the latest census, detroit is the only -- the country's 18th largest city with just more than 700,000 inhabitants, for a city that covers almost 139 square miles. a space that san francisco, boston and manhattan could fit in with room to spare. there are so many factors contributing to the city's financial distr

that says great. let's have sequestration. let's cut $85 billion out of the economy. let's remove hope from the country. i doubt that you read that it said take hope out of the country and ruin the economy. but i get your point. what i find interesting in your argument, chris, is that you seem to overlook the fact that you have just as many democrats out there screaming the same thing on the left. starti ining howard deem. also, the whole idea of sequestration emanated -- >> what office does howard dean own? >> i'm just saying. you're pointing and say ing say >> it pushes both of these folks -- >> i'm sosh ri. i just want to check your facts. what democrats holding office in the congress want to see sequestration. >> the ones who voted for it. starting with them. you mean this whole thing got passed just on republican votes? >> it was called kicking the can -- >> are you kidding? >> i'm going to ask you again, do you believe right now there are any democrats in the house or senate who want to see sequestration? >> yes. >> name one. >> there have been folks on the record, chris. i can't name
